Good information if you are thinking of using a for sale by owner service…

This is an interesting article regarding just how successful and how much money you save listing with on a “for sale by owner”  site rather than with a Realtor® professional.

“Besides their front page declaring how many total listings they’ve had to date (45,899), I couldn’t find any relevant stats (Why total listings and not total solds?)

I did a search for Calgary and came up with 92 listings.  I clicked on “Include Sold” and the number surged to a total of 95 listings.  (I don’t know how far back they keep their solds in the system)

So I searched for the 3 that had sold:…

And guess what?  All three were recently sold through MLS®.”

I would assume then that these sellers had to pay for the FSBO services without selling and then later pay commission? If you list with a Realtor® and don’t sell… you’ve spent nothing.
